Open and Affirming
The First Congregational United Church of Christ of Corning, NY, believes that we are all made in the image of God and that we are called to celebrate our God-given identities regardless of age, class, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical ability, marital status, race, ethnicity, or mental ability.
As Jesus calls us to love each other as we are loved by God, we welcome, affirm, and support all people into our full life and ministry. (Adopted April 28, 2013. Open and Affirming church #10--)
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!
